    New generation of protection: behavior-based security

    ClearShield is a behavior-based security system that picks up where Microsoft Vista leaves off.

    While Vista has significantly improved operating system security, it is not intended to counter every single new and emerging threat. ClearShield was designed specifically as a complement to Vista, protecting Vista users from the three most dangerous types of threats not addressed by Vista or traditional security products:

    ...

    Interesting , one of the first products that was designed for Vista (32 bit) only. Currently beta.

    I wonder why this company is a Red Herring 100 winner? Are they that good? I really would like to know just how many rootkits it can spot. Other than that, the "Peripheral Control" feature also seems to be nice, but I don´t really need it at the moment though.

    Hi all,

    ClearShield is indeed only available for Vista at the moment.
    Sorry about that but we did spend a lot of time to make ClearShield Vista Certified.
    I'll keep you posted if we change anything.
    If you have Vista, feel free to test the beta and give us your feedback.

    Rasheed, we are amazing.... ;-)
    We believe in what we do and I think some people out there agree with us. The best way to show that is indeed to get recognition from people like Red Herring and we'll do our best to make ClearShield an award winner? That can only help people in choosing the best security software.

    Thanks for your comments and visit our site:

    Wow! That was fast!

    I doubt it is as good as SSM Pro.

    Who is Red Herring?

    Used my wifes Vista PC, the UAC is off.

    Easy to install and setup, nice GUI, uses very little resources, not much configuration to do, very very minimal.

    System Integrity Protection-Activate or Disable
    Data Input Confidentiality-Activate, Warn, Disable
    Storage Device Control-Always Block, Never Block


    You need to activate CS, I think once you download the program it is activated for 60 days automatically, there is also an option to buy the program.

    Only ran one test-
    AKLT from firewallleaktester.com

    GetKeyState-Failed
    GetAsyncKeyState-Failed
    DirectX-Passed, Clearshield alerted me with a popup and a message was placed in the log section. So I guess CS is activated?
    Screenshot 1-Failed
    Screenshot 2-Failed

    I have since removed this program, I'm not really into running beta programs but was curious about this since it was for Vista

    @ ClearShield

    I see that the company behind this product is SkyRecon Systems, never heard of it but apparently it´s one of the bigger European security companies, correct? Also, is it sort of like the consumer edition of StormShield? And why no XP version?

    (Small tip about the website: the flash animation uses quite a lot of CPU time, you might want to optimize or ditch it. And where are the screenshots?)

    I also think that HIPS like SSM and PS are probably offering more protection, but I´m not sure.

    You can't compare SSM and CS, SSM is far far far more advanced.
    CS is like a program for people who don't want to answer to alot of popup messages or don't understand something when a message popups.
    It is basically a set it and forget it program, run it from default, you have options but they are not much, activate/disable, block/don't block, that's it, how hard is that as compared to what SSM offers?

    You don't understand the difference between behavior analyzers and HIPS.
    HIPS will warn you for any change made to system and leave all the decisions to the user, while behavior analyzers only warn users when unacceptable changes to the system are performed (eg malware execution)

    Notice I said you can't compare the two programs, I know what both do.

    Does that mean that behavior analyzers say always NO without any user input ?

    No, they just don't nag for any change to the system...

    But if they nag for a change to the system, the user has to decide to accept the change or not ?

    Yes.

    The main difference is that HIPS are blind because annoy you about any system change, and BB are smart because only alert you about possible threat.

    Of course that make the smart analysis is much more difficult...
